Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan For All
I know a lot of you, like me, aren’t vegan for your health. And I know a lot of you do eat a vegan diet because of the health benefits. Intentions aside, most of us are thriving and can’t imagine life any other way. We hear so many success stories of people turning their health around with veganism, many of them with no more than ethical reasons for going vegan in the first place. A lot of us feel no one has any reason not to go vegan. Some argue the vegan diet takes extremely careful planning, and others say yes, but no more than any other diet. But sometimes we come across those who are planning their vegan diet very carefully, getting all the recommended nutrients, and still just aren’t feeling healthy. They don’t want to give up veganism, but it comes to point where they have to listen to their doctors and loved ones and really question if their vegan diet could be preventing their wellness. What do you think? Does veganism work for absolutely everyone?
- Do you think some people just can’t thrive an a vegan diet?
- If so, why do you think those people are unable to get what their body needs from a plant-based diet while most of us do so well?
- If you began to experience health problems you felt were stemming from your diet, what would you do?
- How extensively would you try to make veganism work for you?
